Today was a chill day. It was our LAST DAY HERE (so sad) so we spent our time in the morning to finish editing our pictures and getting things ready for our books. In the afternoon we were able to go to the beach again! Third day in a row, score! By now, I have gotten really really tan (yay) and everyone has been telling me that I look like a local (yay, again). We didn't stay for very long, but I was happy we got to spend some time at the beach on our last day here. The beach is my favorite. The rest of the day we didn't do anything blog-worthy, so don't fret because of the lack of entry this time. Our bus is picking us up at 2:30 this next morning to take us to the airport in Athens. No sleep tonight. Wish us luck.

Off to the island of Hydra!!!! We woke up early, took a 2 hour bus ride to a dock, and boarded a boat that took us to Hydra! They do not allow cars onto to island so their mode of travel is donkey!

The donkey owners do not treat them very well and they rip you off on the cost of donkey rides, so we were not able to ride any. But I wasn’t too bummed because I already have ridden a donkey in Tanzania. We had a couple of hours to shop and take pictures of portraits of people before we went to lunch. I’m pretty sure whenever we are able to split off into groups to explore or eat or do whatever we want, I am 99% of the time with Erin. Let’s just say we’re besties now (plus we take ADORABLE pictures together [they’re all on other people’s cameras so hopefully they will upload some so you can see!])
I do have one...

After lunch we went to a "cliff" and went "cliff jumping"! It wasn't a huge cliff but it was alright and we jumped off rocks that were about high dive-height. It was so fun! The water is soooooooo salty over there. Almost unbearable. I had a slight runny nose pre-jump, and when I got out my sinuses were cleared. Two-in-one's are always fun.

The Greek boys love us. Especially in bathing suits. (We can't help it.)
